A "Brush" with Horror

Forget to brush; must maintain that gleam Run to sink, grab a tube, no light stream Such an odd taste in my mouth Quickly I must spit it out Oh, dear Lord, it’s Dad’s hemorrhoid cream! (Sadly, a true story)

She was brushing her pearlies in haste/ When she found such a terrible taste/ 'Twas Preparation H/ And the thought made her retch/ And now she feels somewhat shit-faced

LOL Great play on words with the "shit-faced," Roy. I'd love to co-write a limerick with you sometime. I'm not a meter maid, but I can adapt. If you send me an email with your address, I'll send you a prize. Perhaps a CD or DVD of your choice?

LOL - I see this one got first place and no wonder. Loved it. And did your dad mistake toothpaste for piles cream? If he did, he probably didn't tell anyone : ) Gert had a great time with his poetry recital. I would have been a nervous wreck! Hope you're having a great day

Well, at least you were puckered up for a good kissing! Looks like we get to share first place! Hmm I wonder what else we could share? Funny, I wish I could smear that on some people I know to make them go away!
